Corrigan Herbert Joins FLGP for the Summer

Corrigan Herbert, the 2016 Nelson J. Shaulis Summer Scholar, will be working with the Finger Lakes Grape Program team this summer. As this year's recipient of the Nelson J. Shaulis Scholarship, Corrigan will be spending the growing season managing a small research project of her own, as well as working alongside our Cornell Cooperative Extension team and many of the viticulture researchers at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva. Corrigan just completed her first year in the Viticulture and Wine Technology program at Finger Lakes Community College. You'll very likely see her out in area vineyards with us working on field trials, during farm visits, or joining in on the conversations at Tailgate Meetings over the next couple of months.
